Dikasterion – Stavelot 1597 / Rome 897 (7 inch)
Black/death metal barbarism. Born from the evilish alliance of North and South of Hellgium, Dikasterion preach His unholy gospel, following the ancient path opened by such entities as Barathrum, Archgoat, Beherit, and Holy Death. As such, their muscular & miasmic black metal sound is more a maw of hellishly humid frequencies all emanating a cruel & commanding righteousness. Dikasterion proved as much with their debut demo last year, and follow it up with yet two more attacks showing a further finessing of their no-less-raw fury. Unremittingly dark, dingy, and diseased, “Stavelot 1597 / Rome 897” is a swift sojourn into this band’s ever-deepening abyss. Submerge thyself!
